We’re very excited to annouce we’re hosting the London Short Film Festival in January, alongside the ICARich Mix LondonRegent Street Cinema and Curzon Cinema Soho . On Sat 12 and Sun 13 January, the Air Draft returns to Grow and throughout the weekend, films and performances will be shown on this floating pavillion and inside Grow itself. Read our blog for the full programme of events.

After a packed programme during the day, Satrurday culminates in the Emo Video Jukebox.


After gestating for the better part of the Nineties, emo broke through to the MTV2 mainstream in the early Aughts, suckering in the angsty young hearts and existential woes of a million kohl-eyed teens.

For LSFF’s Saturday night offering, don your skinniest skinnies and come revel in your nostalgia for the millennium’s last true subculture. We’re throwing it back with a music video jukebox from the pre-broadband golden age of punk rock and emo, featuring directors Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry and the music of Taking Back SundayJimmy Eat WorldRival Schools and many more.


You can also enjoy a range of organic, independent and fair-trade drinks and lunch from the guest vegan kitchen at this totally unique creative space by the River Lea in Hackney Wick.

From organic wines and Processco , mulled wine and cider, ales and a range of soft drinks including Kompassion Kumbucha and Rejuce, you can enjoy the views canal side in their winter garden or the inside space transformed from an old sausage factory.

Operating as an experiment in ethical and sustainable business, Grow has been created by local artists and social entrepreneurs and hosts a wide-range of events throughout the year.
